Subject: Over-Looked Roy Rogers Film
Originally titled "Border Legion" this last Roy Rogers film of 1940 has a lot going for it. It has a big cast of Republic regulars for one and a Zane Grey story stripped down and changed to suit the premise for another. It had been filmed 3 times before at Paramount in 1924, 1930, and 1934 with the likes of Richard Arlen and Randolph Scott in the Roy Rogers role. This filming also has the best technical work going for it for the time, Great sound and picture quality for a TV Print. Roy Rogers is quite good in this as he gets to act some and not just play himself. Carol Hughes quite good as the love interest. Notables: Joe Sawyer (Sauers)as the outlaw leader, Hal Taliaferro as the Sheriff, Gabby Hayes and Maud Eberne tit for tat in the comedy dept. A rousing little western to say the least. Enjoy.
